Around Here: June 2017
June 26, 2017
Hello out there! Here's a little bit about life right now:
This is me right now:
My current art obsession is: This Julie's Word's stencil:
I've been using it all over my faces and paintings and throughout my art journal.
My current life obsession is: Sleep Stylers. My Mom saw them on Shark Tank and ordered them for me.
Essentially, they're soft rollers you put in your hair at night and then you wake up with pretty curls. I have curls, but if I sleep on wet hair, my hair is usually a hot mess. Therefore I've always been a morning shower person. However, with the Sleep Stylers, I really can shower at night and wake up with "done" hair. It's pretty cool. Not easy to sleep on at first, but I'm getting used to it. And on days with early morning appointments, it's nice to be able to shower the night before!
I'm loving: Ikea!
I have ordered from Ikea online before, but I made my first in-person visit to Ikea last week. It was amazing. So much fascinating design. I loved it! I was just soaking up all the pattern and color and shapes and space configurations. Definitely an inspiring afternoon!
I'm hating: Got my first Stitch Fix box. If you're not familiar with Stitch Fix, it's a mail order clothing company. You fill out a long profile and then they send you five hand picked items. They've been around for a long time and a lot of the bloggers I follow wax poetic about Stitch Fix. They show their boxes full of beautiful clothes on their blogs and on instagram. So, I was super excited when Stitch Fix announced they were going to go into plus size (above a size 12). What I got was kind of disappointing. I made a video about it:
I got a lot of advice from folks on YouTube and Facebook on how to get a better fix and one of them was to create a pinterest board with items that represented my style. And so, I did. I'm hoping I'll hate the next box less.
My home is: Clean! Clean! Spectacularly clean! After living in a disaster zone for forever and a year, I finally got things straightened up and organized. I'm deliriously happy about it!
A very nice man brings me flowers with some regularity. :)
My favorite art project I made this month but haven't shown on the blog yet: It's coming tomorrow...sneak peek:
I think you're going to love it! Thanks for stopping by!
